Endangered red-legged frog is named California state amphibian

The California red-legged frog was once abundant throughout much of Central and Southern California. Its numbers have dwindled throughout the years, due to invasive species and habitat loss, but it's currently protected under the federal Endangered Species Act.

Now this vulnerable creature is California's official state amphibian. Research Wildlife Biologist Gary Fellers joins Take Two to talk about the species and it's new, elevated status.
